ITALIAN TEAM SUES CELTICS TO KEEP SHAW

The owners of Italy's Il Messaggero basketball team have filed suit in federal court to keep guard Brian Shaw from returning to the Boston Celtics.

Shaw, who played in Italy last season after signing a two-year, $1.8 million pact with Il Messaggero, filed an affidavit Monday, saying he wants to get out of his Celtics contract and return to Italy next season.
